Progress in radiation oncology is based mostly on three pillars, said Eduardo Rosenblatt, one of the editors of the publication: technological advances that allow delivering a dose of radiation high enough to destroy the tumour cells to a limited volume of tissue without inducing severe irreversible damage to the healthy organs; biological and radiobiological research that looks for strategies to induce killing of cancer cells in a selective way, taking advantage of molecular and genetic mechanisms; and clinical trials of high quality that are able to provide scientific evidence to demonstrate that one treatment approach is superior to another, which is the objective behind evidence-based radiation oncology.
These inferences are made after analysis of data from clinical trials of altered fractionation schemes based on radiobiological principles.
